explained that the University Club
in Buffalo is an outgrowth of a na-

flourish several years ago.
These sectional clubs for Buffalo
students, were called Scalp and Blade
Society, formed at leading universi-
ties throughout the country, it was
pointed out, and were very active at
one time. They became so strong in
Buffalo that they formed the club
now known as the University Club,
and the Michigan chapter, always
one of the strongest of the organiza-

League ilances
This Week-En d

Few Dances To Be
Held This Wee k-end


Although offcials of the Leaguej
have found it necessary to cancel
t h e regular membership dances,
scheduled for tonight and Saturday,
other day and evening features will
not be curtailed, it was announced
Free dancing to radio music in the
grill will take the place of tonight's
dance and all game rooms and other
recreation' departments wvill be oper-
ating as usual, it is expected.
"Our reason for canceling the
membership dances is purly a result
of the temporary banking situation.,"
according to Miss Alta B. Atkinson,
manager of the League. '"This ac-
tion will not affect the tea-dancing
and. mid-week evening dancing next
week, and we do not expect it to
affect the membership dances for
next week-end, unless developments
in the banking problem present fur-
ther difficulties."
A balloon dance tonight will be the
feature of the social week-end at the
Union, according to Edward W. Mc-
Cormick, '34. The regular member-
ship 'dance will take place Saturday
night and every attempt will be made3
to ca-e fo1 Me addeci crowds expectedj
as a result of thc cnceling of the
Laue danes. McCormick said.
Other r iles ot' te Union will

"Planetaria," said Dr. Hazel M.
Losh, instructor in Astronomy, "have'
both decided advantages and disad-
vantages. In a large city where stel-
lar observation is greatly hindered by
clouds, lights, and other physical
conditions planetaria are very bene-
ficial. They are also valuable in that
they bring the entire field of As-
'tronomy, from the earliest times to
the present day, within the gasp of
the general public. A planetarium
is an astronomical achievement from
the mechanical point of view because I
phenomena which would ordinarily
take months to become evident are
projected on the dome in a very short
space of time. There is also, how-
ever, a disadvantage in this quality
I because the speed with which certain
j aspcts of the science are shown
mii'ght very easily give the laymian
an erroneous conception of the 'phe-
"Another disadvantage," Dr. Losh
continued,- "is that although the
planetaria give the entire field of as-
tinoiny they are not useful in re-
search because of their inherent arti-
ficial qualities. The primary purpose
of the planetarium is to show the
elementary motions of the stars but
beyond this research is impossible."
"Although I can readily see that
planetaria are very beneficial in so
far as' they bring the elements of
Astronomy to the public, I feel that
if the' money expended 'on them were
put into observatories which could be
opened to the pu blidthere would' le
as much if not more advahe in thc
4eneral knowledge of the subje6L"

McCarthy, general chairman, said
The price of $3 set by the commit-
tee, one dollar lower than the price
of last year's Frolic tickets, will help
to make the dance one of the most
attractive events of the season, for
Emerson Gil ls orchestra is well-
known in this part of the country
and is a popular radio favorite on
Cleveland stations.
Tickets may be secured from each
member of the Frosh Frolic commit-
tee and also at the Hut, the Den, the
Union and the Parrot.
The following are members of the
committee: general chairman, John
C. McCarthy; program committee,

tions, Paul Philips, Sue Thomas;

Fifteen people turned out for the
weekly lessons in contract bridge for
beginners held Wednesday night at
the League.
These lessons are heiI in conjunc-
tion with the regular bridge program
which the League maintains. In-
cluded among the bridge activities
is the weekly duplicate bridge con-
test held on Tuesday nights. Last
Tuesday, Mr. and Mrs. S. D. Porter
of Lakewood had the top-scores for
the north-south position, and Profes-
sor C. E. Love and E. W. Miller had
the top-scores for east-west position.
There were ten tables playing. The
charge is 25 cents an evening.
Starting next Tuesday, a tourna-
t between the independents and
sorority women will be held. The
winner of the independent-sorority
contest will play the winners of the
contest to be held between the inde-
pendent and fraternity men.
